My husband was laid off in April of 2020 due to the pandemic.
Two weeks ago he began streaming on Spoon, an audio only app for 13+. He decided that the young people on this app could use a welcoming and friendly chat room to relax and maybe even fall asleep. He employs the soft spoken nature of Bob Ross and the child like imagination of a Mr. Rogers episode. He usually accompanies this stream with the sounds of a crackling fire and soft piano music from his laptop.
In this short time he has been able to garner 348 fans on this app, many of these fans come to his chat room to relax, get advice, and even fall asleep every night, and range in age from teenagers to adults. Many of the fans have mentioned that they find this as a safe and welcoming place that helps them deal with stress, anxiety and depression.
All of this is great and needed, however, we find ourselves faced with mounting bills and very little income trickling in to even try to pay them. This on top of needing better equipment to provide a better stream for all of these amazing "eggletts" as he calls them in the stream, is a must for him to continue to provide this service. If we cannot pay the rent, electric, and internet bills, then we have no place or means to provide this to them.
This is a very stressful situation to be in and still have to take a deep breath and relieve the stress of others for free, but he does it because seeing how welcomed they feel warms his heart.
We are asking that if you can help, any amount is appreciated as well as shares to your social medias to spread the word. We want to continue this beautiful live stream and help as many as possible, but we need your support. The amount we are asking for is for all the items mentioned above and the total can help us for a couple months and hopefully get us back on our feet. Our rent has been pushed to the 17th and we still have no idea how we can afford it without support.
Thank you in advance.
